Aces and Jokers Wild!

In 1946 an alien virus released over Manhattan changed the world forever. Ninety percent of the people exposed to the wild card virus died, and some say they were the lucky ones. Of the survivors, nine out of ten were mutated into "jokers," hideous freaks. Only a rare one percent became "aces," people gifted with superhuman powers.

In 1985, the first book in the Wild Cards series introduced readers to this strange new universe, spanning more than a dozen anthologies and novels. Now players of Mutants & Masterminds can make the world of Wild Cards their own in this all-new sourcebook by Wild Cards author John Jos. Miller. In it you will find:

  • A complete history of the Wild Cards world, from Wild Card Day in 1946 up to the present.
  • Details on the effects of the wild card virus and the creation of aces and jokers.
  • Profiles of dozens of major Wild Cards characters, including M&M game stats.
  • Everything you need to create your own Wild Cards series for Mutants & Masterminds, including how to transform yourself with the wild card!
  • Random systems for assignment of ace powers and joker mutations.
  • The introductory adventure "Ante-Up" to get you started in the strange and wonderful world of Wild Cards.

Experience super-powers and Mutants & Masterminds like never before by exploring a world where the luck of the draw means the difference between fame and power and a terrible genetic curse. Draw the wild card and see what you get.

A Song of Ice and Fire Roleplaying Cover Image

Game: A Song of Ice and Fire Roleplaying

Free Start: Quickstart PDF

These ENnie Award-winning Quick-Start rules and the adventure Journey to King’s Landing are mean to be your introduction to both the A Song of Ice and Fire Roleplaying game and to the fantasy world detailed in George R.R. Martin’s best-selling series of novels.

A Song of Ice and Fire Roleplaying is about Machiavellian court politics, family alliances and enmities, the rise and fall of kingdoms, and the clash of armies, but it is also about honor and duty, family, the responsibilities of leadership, love and loss; tournaments, murders, conspiracies, prophecies, dreams, war, great victories, and terrible defeats. It’s about knights, both false and true... and it’s about dragons.

Welcome to the world of A Song of Ice and Fire, and remember the words of House Stark: “Winter is coming.”

This is a fantastic book. It is not only a role-playing book, but a full on encyclopedia of everything Wild Card. It starts out with a history of the Wild Card virus with a walk through of the books. This is the first time I, personally, have ever [...]

Format
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
